    Any idea how many were killed in ’Nam, just being sent out to recover the bodies of those killed before them, so families would have “closure”? Bergdahl may have been a jerk, but he was an American one, and folks back here were demanding his return as in “no man left behind”.


    I’m sure glad nobody got hurt because Jolly Ollie and Reagan gave Iran weapons and materials, like those used against our troops in Beirut. They also didn’t have anything to do with supporting Al Qaeda when the sent stingers to bin Laden’s folks and friends, right?


    Oh, right, there weren’t any hostages, Reagan just wanted to support Contras, who were taking hostages.

    Bergdahl, it appears, was an enemy sympathizer who deserted his post. If this is true, I agree, he must be gotten back. Then tried and if found guilty, shot.
    Those who find fault with this, question the means of securing his return. One simply doesn’t exchange five trained committed enemy operatives for one suspected traitor.
    It would seem there were other motives than “no man left behind”. Even die hard Obamaites must admit that.

    Cheaper just to let the guy stay in the Hell he created for him self. In fact we should just let him advertise what happens to deserters who try to feel for the enemy. Give him his own YouTube channel so you can see what happens in the loving peaceful Radical Islamic camps to the infidels. And Obama let 5 more go so they can not only fight, but lead more to fight against infidels. Sad thing is it will still give Loony liberals that warm feeling inside that they felt for and looked through the eyes of the other guy.

    When it is said “no man left behind” it refers to actual men, not deluded traitors. I watched “unbroken” last night. …. Good Lord have we fallen far from what we consider real men. But I thank God there are so many real men AND women that are out there in the military, it’s just a pity that so many at home are unworthy of their sacrifice.

    People think I post too much, but your little pointless attacks ask for it. Say SOMETHING or say nothing.

    =====
    You mean the truck or the semtex used on the barracks?Or the Hezbollah jihad jerk that drove the truck?Iran went through Syria,a Soviet,now Russian, client state to get Hezbollah to attack the barracks.
    Al Qaeda did not exist in 1983.The Arab volunteers associated with Bin Laden did not get Stingers.They asked for them,but got none.Most of the Soviet helicopter’s lost were shot down with Soviet made SA-7’s captured by Israel from Arabs ,heavy machine gun fire and B-40’s,or RPG’s as they are called today.Stingers were not that effective against the MI-24 because of it was so heavily armored.Many times they kept flying after the small warhead on the Stinger failed to do enough damage to bring it down.
    You know ,I haven’t seen any news story about the Russian Naval base in Syria being attacked by any of the many Islamic jihad jerk groups in Syria.Why is that?All the jihadists seem to have AK’s RPD’s,RPK’s and RPG’s.

    1) Do conservatives realize that when they write things down and publish them, they will be readable even after they’ve changed their minds? They were screaming for Bergdahl to be rescued right up to the moment the memo went out that it was time to scream that he shouldn’t have been rescued.

    2) “Six men died.” This has been asserted, but nobody can find anybody who actually died bringing him back. Again, conservatives have their own set of ‘facts.’

    3) Guilt or innocence is determined through proper channels, not by the word of some random soldier with a grudge. Now that he’s home, he is subject to trial like anyone else.

    4) According to all applicable laws, the inmates freed from Gitmo would have had to have been sent back to their countries anyway. That is the law, which any president is bound to obey. We got him back in exchange for people they would have gotten anyway.

    5) Please show me where you were 100 times as outraged over the 500 detainees released from Gitmo under GW Bush, many of whom went on to fight against us. To clarify: I am not pointing to Bush in order to smear him, but to point out the hypocritical selective rage being vented now by those who (see #1) were foaming at the mouth earlier because Obama wasn’t freeing Bergdahl fast enough.

    Unbroken is a true story of a true American hero.

    ey will be readable even after they’ve changed their minds? "
    You mean now that the guy is going to be tried and not hailed as a Hero, Obama has changed his mind and slowly backed away?
    “2) “Six men died.” This has been asserted, but nobody can find "
    That is a fact! sorry but it is a document fact! 6 died, many were also pulled off of duties and put into harms way needless. That is also a fact!
    “3) Guilt or innocence is determined through proper channels”
    yeh, on a battlefield your guilt is determined by your actions. The guy voluntarily walked away. That became a provable fact he went to the enemy on his on accord. If found on the battlefield he could have been shot. Also after he found out he was an infidel and started crying for his daddy, there was no one to say, well he might have been taken or it might not have been his fault, nope. Everyone involved knew he walked away from his post. The only thing a military justice system has to work out is what to charge him with and how much he should be punished for his crimes.
    4) According to all applicable laws,"
    You are a battle field lawyer now? really? how far are you willing to go to protect Obama?
    " those who (see #1) were foaming at the mouth earlier because Obama wasn’t freeing Bergdahl fast enough."
    um show me who and when this was? I did not know about the guy. Those that did have called him a traitor.

    ..
    um no, they went looking, some were pulled from other duties and put into harms way, some died looking for him. But no one after the search was “screaming” about a rescue. Well some might have screamed as they went to their death!
    here are comments from someone who was there.

    ..

    His disappearance translated into daily search missions across the entire Afghanistan theater of operations, particularly ours. The combat platoons in our battalion spent the next month on daily helicopter-insertion search missions (called "air assaults”) trying to scour villages for signs of him. Each operations would send multiple platoons and every enabler available in pursuit: radio intercept teams, military working dogs, professional anthropologists used as intelligence gathering teams, Afghan sources in disguise. They would be out for at least 24 hours. I know of some who were on mission for 10 days at a stretch. In July, the temperature was well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit each day
